From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Impact Wrestling Knockouts Championship is a women's professional wrestling world championship owned by the Impact Wrestling professional wrestling promotion. It is primarily contested for in TNA's women's division, though it has been challenged one time by a male competitor (Cody Deaner). It was introduced on October 14, 2007 at TNA's Bound for Glory pay-per-view (PPV) event under the name "TNA Women's World Championship";[1] it was later renamed "TNA Women's Knockout Championship" in 2008. The word "Knockout" in the championship's name alludes to the term TNA Knockout, which TNA uses to refer to its female wrestlers.[2]

Being a professional wrestling championship, it is not won legitimately; it is instead won via a scripted ending to a match or awarded to a wrestler because of a storyline. All title changes have occurred at TNA-promoted events; reigns that occurred on TNA's primary television program, Impact Wrestling, usually aired on tape delay and as such are listed with the day the tapings occurred, rather than the air date. The inaugural champion was Gail Kim who defeated Ms. Brooks, Christy Hemme, Awesome Kong, Roxxi Laveaux, Velvet Sky, Shelly Martinez, Jackie Moore, ODB, and Angelina Love in a ten–Knockout gauntlet match.[1] Rosemary is the current champion, who's in her first reign. She won the title on Impact Wrestling. At 279 days, Taryn Terrell's first reign is the longest in the title's history, overtaking Gail Kim's previous record of 210 days. Tara's fourth reign holds the record for shortest reign in the title's history at one day.[3] Overall, there have been 46 reigns shared among 18 wrestlers, with two vacancies.
